Default Question about attaching putting to a house

Do any of you guys have any experience attaching a purlin/receiver to a brick wall of a house. I'm wanting to add a roof over a deck on the back of our house. I'm wondering what type of anchor system I need to use. The side opposite of the house will be supported by square tubing buried an set in concrete.

Yea I was worried I may get that response. I'm limited to space with an existing wood deck.

Here's what I did. Best 1800 bucks I ever spent. Covered 24 foot on one side a 20 on the other. Posts concrete anchored to the slab and welded.

Mis-calculation in cutting my posts caused the purlin to be placed flat

How old is the house and how much weight is going on top of it?

Basically if you want to use some tapcon screws and screw a cedar 2x8 and run some cedar 2x4's on it, I don't think you'll hurt anything. However if you are going to put shingles on it on it and some weight I recommend the post route.

This is exactly what I'm looking to do.

I'm looking at using receiver channel and r-panel sheets for the lid.

I did mine roughly 8 or 9 years ago. Set posts to existing slab and framed. Then screwed r panel. Never an issue and its stout!! You can walk on it without an issue. Can't coint the compliments I get on it. Bought all my steel from metal mart in Conroe. FIL helped me cut and set posts then lent me his 115v welding machine and I worked on it before work. Took me about 2 weeks from posts to paint.

I can send more pics and offer and advice you need. Very happy with how mine turned out

Brick is a fašade and has no structural value.
As furtrapper said, set posts next to the wall and build off of those.

Can you not pull up the boards next to the house and set those posts and lay the boards back down (trimmed around the new posts) ? Or beef-up the deck and weld plates to the bottom of the posts and screw them to the deck.
